Poe on Maria Ressa Nobel Prize:

Maria Ressa has shown us what it takes to uphold press freedom. It requires courage and constancy, especially because the pursuit of truth and justice can often be dangerous.

Her unflinching trailblazing deeds, using the information platform effectively, have helped us discern beyond the news.

We hope Maria's tenacity and passion in her mission will inspire the Filipino people, especially amid the health crisis and as we close in on another political crossroad with the national elections next year.

Her Nobel Peace Prize award solidifies her place not only as one of the country's journalism icons, but also all over the world.
